Father Martino Choi told some 18,000 teens and adults about his mother's decision in favor of life at a Youth Rally and Mass for Life held in Washington, D.C., on Friday morning.
"I know a woman who went in for her ultrasound, and was told by the doctors that the child's organs were not developing properly. The child would probably not make it a year after birth, and they recommended abortion," Fr. Choi said during his homily at the Capital One Arena Jan. 19.
"This woman is my mother, and I am that child," he stated.
Choi is a parish priest at St. Patrick's parish in Rockville, Md., about 20 miles northwest of the District of Columbia. He said the doctors had told his mother that abortion would shield him and her from unnecessary suffering. He continued: "The devil knows who to disguise evil with a lie that somehow death is better than life … but death is never better than life."
